Carriage Trips around picturesque Howth

Go Carriage Driving


On sunny days and fine summer evenings we offer carriage driving trips at the summit of the scenic Howth Peninsula.

Forget about the hustle and bustle around you and take a gentle, leisurely carriage drive on quiet roads - admire the flora and fauna of Howth - see pheasants and seagulls simultaneously or maybe even a couple of fox cubs frolicking before bedtime on a sunny summer evening. And, unlike whizzing by in a car, you have time to appreciate the local architecture.

Fantastic Views


On fine sultry days you can see the coast of Wales to the East, the Wicklow Mountains as far South as Arklow, and the Mountains of Mourne to the North looking out across the beautiful islands of Ireland's Eye and Lambay Island.

Look back towards Dublin Bay and the city - see the twin chimneys at The Pigeon House or you may even be able to pick out The Spire in O'Connell Street.



A short circuitous trip with fantastic Dublin Bay and Baily Lighthouse views lasts about half an hour.
Longer trips of an hour's duration can take in the West Mountain as well.

We can, however, provide trips tailored to your needs, - wedding photographic shoots, Cupid's Carriage for marriage proposals, First Communion trips, Debs - always bearing in mind the welfare of the horse. These trips must be pre-booked.

Up to 4 adults (or 2 adults and 4 children) can travel on our comfortable wagonette at any one time.

A half-hour trip is generally long enough for small children

All trips depart from Howth Summit carpark at the top of the Bailey Green Road.

What to Wear


Warm clothing and flat shoes (trainers or walking shoes/boots) are essential. As carriage driving is an elegant traditional sport, you might want to look the part and wear a hat and gloves (any well fitting hat, bearing in mind the wind, or a riding hat or cycling hat for safety.

And like any outdoor sport in Ireland, you could bring along waterproof clothing. However, if the weather is inclement we reserve the right to cancel, adjourn or amend any trip or tour in the interests of safety.
